Early spring is a great time to get out and fish for spawning panfish such as crappie and bluegills.  It is at this time of year that they are on their beds and are very protective/aggressive.  It is not uncommon during this period to catch dozens at a time.  It is fast paced and can be very exciting.  Large mouth bass action is usually heating up by this time too and 3-5lb bass are not uncommon.  This is a great opportunity to get the kids out and introduce them to this great sport.  Kids are welcome in my boat any time.  Whether you are looking for family fun or some tasty pan fried fish, this is the best opportunity there is.  I do most of my spring panfishing on the lakes and river systems of Dunn, Chippewa, and Rusk counties.  I will provide all of the rods and tackle you will need but if you have gear of your own that you wish to use, I welcome you to do so.  Full day trips will include an optional lunch break depending on location.  Lunch will be each individuals responsibility but  I will always have water and snacks.
